Your Friday Hoo Doo Thread: Tennessee

Hoo Doo for the hate, people.

Our beloved Tide hosts Tennessee this weekend, which means that this is more about injury prevention. We ain’t losing to that putrid team. Still, this is important.

Give us your best and please send your content to be featured in future Hoo Doo posts to We need it.

Ground rules:

We know that you miss the Friday Hoo Doo thread, and that we are at least partly to blame for Alabama’s poor injury luck. The problem is, any one person has only so many stories to tell. I do not have the time or creativity to make something up every week just so we can have a thread.

I do, however, have an idea and modest proposal. None of these traditions are really about the writers anyway, they belong to the community at large. Why not feature some of your own infamous moments, in full color?

I have created a new email account,, for the express purpose of receiving Hoo Doo photo and video submissions. We will review them and select one each week during the season to feature. As usual, readers will comment below with their own tales.

The only criteria, being that this is a #familyblawg and all, is that all submissions must be PG rated. Please include a quick story behind the visual and permission to post. Videos will be published to Youtube if you send me a file, or you can send a link if it is already on the web somewhere that will allow an embed. Photos can generally be uploaded with no issues. Also, tell me how you wish to be credited, by name or your RBR username.

This week, we have a photo submission from user Jeff Jones:

Yes, yours truly, 5 years old, not real sure just what was happening at picture day. Kids were asking me about Jesus in my 1st week at Catholic school, staying with Grandma while Dad was in Vietnam, and heathen young man me didn’t know just what to say.

Was only there a couple weeks. Didn’t seem to be fitting in. But the embarrassing part came later, after we moved from Hialeah to W. Palm Beach, then I got my report card from the temporary school and it had NO GRADES AT ALL and I then pitched a fit (may have cried, not sure) because I wanted my A’s to go on that permanent record.

Roll Tide, no injuries, victory, thanks, amen.

Thank you for sharing, Jeff. Your hatred of everything orange is pure.

May this, along with all of your confessions in the comment section, be sufficient to get us through another week with a comfortable victory and no major injuries.

Hoo Doo away, for the good of the team, and think about any photos or videos you have to submit to Football Loki in the future.

Roll Tide.
